Toronto, ON-based band, Isabel & The Uncommons have teamed up with us, at Canadian Beats to unveil their brand new single, “Each Day A Little Less”, along with an accompanying lyric video.
Lead singer-songwriter Isabel Fryszberg continues her love affair with a good heartbreak song, but this time, while collaborating with musician/producer Mitch Giěrio(Emma Lee, Joseě Contreras), she’s straying from her signature romantic heartbreak to the love and despair over her ever-changing neighbourhood in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Each Day a Little Less” is the first single of a collection of compositions soon-to-be-released and will drop to the public on Friday, September 18, with an online viewing of the video starting at 4:00 pm, followed by a half-hour performance. The performance will also include ace guitarist Steve Briggs and dynamo vocalist Rebecca Campbell.
“Each Day a Little Less” is a contemporary protest song coming from a folk tradition with an Americana-driven approach. While walking along in her hood, the melody and chorus came to Fryszberg. Then synchronicity led her to meet up with the very talented Mitch Giěrio at an auto shop while waiting to get her winter tires changed. The two quickly struck up a musical relationship and their collaboration included Giěrio producing as well as performing on the track.
The video was shot by Fryszberg along with cameraman Peter Cresswell, over a period of six months. It completely captures the grim reality of current city-dwelling during these times – and even before the pandemic – but also showcases the beauty of Fryszberg’s beloved Toronto, in a way that hasn’t really been expressed before.
Check out the video below and stay up to date with the band via their socials.
